    Blue-Barber-Braid: Forms at Rest / Forms in Resi

    July 14th, 2018

    Blue-Barber-Braid: Forms at Rest / Forms in Resistance

    Start Date: Friday 8/24/2018 — End Date: Saturday 9/22/2018
    Admission:Free

    Blue-Barbar-Braid: Forms at Rest / Forms in Resistance
    An installation by Izidora Leber LETHE
    24 August - 22 September 2018

    Blue-Barbar-Braid is a semi-fictional solo exhibition by Izidora Leber LETHE paying homage to resistant forms throughout the centuries. By mobilizing the ancient Roman use of blue (associated with loose women, barbarians, or effeminate men), LETHE quotes the semiotics of protest, queer artists’ work post-1970, and the Yugoslav women that shaped, then rejected, the Bauhaus movement. LETHE braids together these latent legacies and wakes them from oblivion.

    Aggregate Space Gallery presents a formation of these collective unknown ancestors organized through collaborative gestures, formal urgencies, and a fluid monumentalization of the act of rebelling. Just as Lethe is the river of forgetting in ancient Greek mythology, Izidora Leber LETHE brings that river closer, so as to re-materialize disjointed moments in history. These forms, even at rest, are rooted in resistance.

    This exhibition was curated by Aaron Wilder as the culminating project of Aggregate Space Gallery’s 2018 Curatorial Fellowship.

    In our ongoing effort to present unique and challenging art experiences to the public, Aggregate Space Gallery is proud to launch this celebration of non-commercial and experimental animation. Animation, as subset within video art, is unique in its versatility as a communicative form and its ability to place viewers inside adjacent realities. It is a medium without rules or restrictions, and its content can address ideas as simple or as complex as the animator intends.

    The exhibition will culminate in an award ceremony hosted by artist, animator, and Congratulations Pine Tree co-host, Kate Rhoades. We will be screening the top two films from each category, as well as a viewer’s choice award from each category. Viewer’s Choice categories will be rated by visitors to the gallery, so come by and judge these films by July 28th! The event will also include a film by each of our exhibition jurors: Meghana Bisineer, Tan Wei Keong, Clement Hil Goldberg, and Jeremy Rourke.

    Featuring shorts by: Noah Aust, Mike Cantor, Carla Ciuffo, Lydia Greer, Paula Moxham Imirzian, Ryan D. Lewis, Michel Levine, Wrik Mead, Sarah Paulsen, Sandro Del Rosario, Paige Stewart, Jordan Wason, and Jeffery Yip.
